"And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters. And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth: Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day. And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day." Genesis 19: King James Bible
"To die is to be a counterfeit, for he is but the counterfeit of a man who hath not the life of a man; but to counterfeit dying, when a man thereby liveth, is to be no counterfeit, but the true and perfect image of life indeed. The better part of valor is discretion, in the which better part I have sav'd my life." To be or not to be: Shakespeare certainly had the Gnossis.
Every man is an island because we have all been compromised by HE who was from us but not of us; The Ofay where 'f' is substituted for v/vv/w/u in etymological evolution: In T'n'T we still say someones 'gone away' when they've been missed: He who was once part of Zoar/Shoal/School/The Multitude; He who became 'Isolated' or (went up out of Zoar) and became an Isle; He whose Issu(e) we refer to today as al Isla(m) or Isra-el; of or from the Island: A name given them by the Auriginal inhabitants of what remains the oldest and most stable landmass: Massey's Auritae/Afritae.
"Ofay: Amer.Eng. black slang, "white person," 1925, of unknown origin. If, as is sometimes claimed, it derives from an African word, none corresponding to it has been found. Perhaps the most plausible speculation is Yoruba ófé "to disappear" (as from a powerful enemy), with the sense transf. from the word of self-protection to the source of the threat. OED regards the main alternative theory, that it is pig Latin for foe, to be an "implausible guess." Even the Online Etymology Dictionary has got it bass-ackwards because the focus is Eurocentric and according to that theory Europe was populated from the East; despite their biblical teachings that Cain was banished to the East in the land of Nod/Nought/Zero; and Noah's Ark is said to come to rest in the East. Their reliance has to be on the Old English Dictionary because the Celtic influence preceded the Indo European influence or Sanskrit in the West. When Herodotus says that the Scythae/Scuitae/Scotts are the same Cynesians from the West he's not lying; he's merely reporting what he was told by the very people about their ancestry. The story of Atlantis isn't Platonian, Plato is merely relating the oral history of humanity as told by Africans or Afro-Egyptians. Griot style.
Consider this Wikipedia excerpt:
"Many modern Western scholars see parallels between African American music such as the blues, that is rooted in Black American slave songs, and Gnawa music as well as Sufi tariqa. This influence also resonates from other spiritual sub-Saharan black groups such as the Bori in Nigeria, the Stambouli in Tunisia, the Sambani in Libya, the Bilali in Algeria and those outside Africa such as the Voodoo religion or the Candomble in Brazil. These similarities in the artistic and scriptural representations are seen by such scholars as reflecting a shared experience of many African diasporic groups."
It is not just a diasporic experience; which suggests an influence by the overlord/conqueror's culture, the Gaita of Spain, the Gaida of Bulgaria, the Charango of the Canaries all originate from the Malian Kora. As stated in an earlier discussion with Judah, the Greco-Roman word Iberia is phonetically the same as the Egyptian (H) 'Apiru; "The Ancient Greeks discovered Iberia by voyaging westward. Hecataeus of Miletus was the first known to use the term around 500 BC." Now consider what Wikipedia says about the word Arab: "the root of the word has many meanings in Semitic languages including "west/sunset," "desert," "mingle," "merchant," "raven" and are "comprehensible" with all of these having varying degrees of relevance to the emergence of the name. It is also possible that some forms were metathetical from '-B-R "moving around" (Arabic '-B-R "traverse"), and hence, it is alleged, "nomadic."
Whether Iberia represents one of the many words of Arabic influence in the Greco-Latin language it should be clear that more than letters were transposed during the wanderings of these nomads and thus: "Todos Estamos Gitanas" having strayed far from our source and according to the Sibyls our generations are numbered.
